Easy Craft projects Challenge no2 DT Project

The second Easy Craft Projects Challenge was launched yesterday but I could not post about it as I was on my Christmas do. I had a lovely time thanks to great company, a few glasses of wine and food. The perfect way to celebrate Christmas with my work friends! I also came home to some more very exciting news but I can't tell you any more about that until the 24th so 'watch this space' as they say!

Now on with the second ECP challenge...

The theme this fortnight is to create something based on one of the following projects from ECP...

Christmas Bag - ... as_bag.pdf
Stockings - ... ocking.pdf
Calender - ... lendar.pdf
Recycled Glass Jars - ... ecycle.pdf
Picture Frame - ... erfect.pdf

You can create anything you like - a card, scrapbook LO, altered projects, ATC...whatever. You can also interpret the projects to suit you.

This challenge is also being sponsored by The Cutting Cafe. Every entry will be put into the draw with those from challenge one to receive any three sets of your choice from The Cutting Cafe.

I chose to make a project inspired by the Christmas bag. I constructed a box from corrugated red card and a lid from patterned card then fixed a handle to the lid with some glue and my Crop-o-dile.

I inked the edges of the lid and then added patterned paper squares to the box base.
I added die cut snowflakes to decorate the box with gems added to the centres and glitter glue to make the snowflakes sparkle.
To finish the box off I added a tag made from the Cutting Cafe printables which I coloured red and decorated the stars with gems.
Make sure you check the ECP Challenge blog for the other stunning DT projects and make sure you take part to be in a chance of winning some free printables.
Have a lovely weekend!

  1. It's fab Jane, crisp and fresh but still very festive..clever you. And thanks for the card; apart from being a great card, it was a very unnecessary and therefore welcome gesture!
